    We have the same problem. Only had the washer for a little over a year, and just don't expect the "Old Reliable" to breakdown.

Thats a good one, lookin up the service manual, it appears that your particular model has a manual release on hte lower section of hte latch assembly itself, and the only way to gain access to it, is to open the door boot/bellow, but obviously with the door locked that's not going to happen, i would try to gain access from underneath but by the looks of it that to is also closed off (solid bottom). id does show a model with a separate access panel(lower 1/4 of front of machine) however i am to assume that your unit has 1 solid front panel no access to remove.sorry i couldnt have better news. And the "pull" in the dispenser is no tere previous neptune frontloaders not pertaining to your machine at all!

    Marilyn there are only a very few select models that will allow you to change the opening direction of your washing machine..if indeed it is the maytag mah6400. then this one would.that's the original martyred front loader..if you could post exact model I'll check it for you
